UDS & ATC team up to provide more opportunities for people with disabilities
United Disability Services and All-Star Training Club have partnered to provide more athletic, educational and recreational opportunities for everyone! The organizations are excited to announce the launch of REACH—Recreation, Education, Arts, Community and Health. The REACH program provides a uniquely inclusive environment for people with disabilities to participate along with family members and friends in leisure activities that promote self-esteem, sportsmanship, healthy living, creativity and the development of long-lasting friendships.
Beginning in February the program will begin offering a diverse range of classes including craft classes in basic jewelry making, easy knitting, handmade cards, scrapbooking, cupcake decorating and more. Fine Art classes will include the addictive art of Zentangle that uses simple lines, circles and shapes to create abstract, one-of-a-kind tangles; drawing with pencil, drawing with colored pencils, and painting with watercolors.
A physical fitness program has also been designed for the entire family. Get Fit will focus on low-level exercises that will aid in controlling weight, increasing energy and toning all muscle groups. Martial arts will also be offered within each session. Rewards will be presented at the end of each session based on progress.
All levels of abilities are welcome—no experience necessary. Class fees vary, and include instruction and all materials. Parents/guardians may participate at a discounted fee. All classes are held at United Disability Services located at 701 South Main Street in Akron; evenings and weekends. For more information, to register for classes or to volunteer, contact Danielle Marino, recreational coordinator, at 330-762-9755, ext. 233, or by email at email@example.com.
The All-Star Training Club has a 25-year history of providing activities that help build self esteem, encourage healthy living and develop long-lasting friendships. United Disability Services has a nearly 65-year history of enhancing the lives of people with disabilities through a variety of programs and services. By working together these two organizations can make this a winning collaboration for everyone.
